Can any body recommend a place to go snowboarding or skiing in south America particularly Argentina? I'd like somewhere backpackery if such a place exists.

I'm also thinking about doing a season in whistler in Canada for the end of my round the world trip.

Advice on places to go and costs would be particularly useful, although any stories about wintry destinations would be good to read.

Argentina: Bariloche is popular. http://www.welcomeargentina.com/ski/index_i.html

BC: Whistler is expensive, even if you're working there. Why limit yourself to Whistler when there are so many other options? See for yourself http://www.skireport.com/bc/

I've heard that Chile is the place to go for skiing in South America.
